Background
Shrewsbury International School, Bangkok offers an inspirational English
language education to carefully selected students aged 3 to 18 years. The
school occupies a stunning riverside setting in the heart of Bangkok, and is
renowned for its academic, musical, artistic and sporting excellence. Whilst
sharing the tradition, values and pioneering spirit of its renowned UK sister
school, the commitment to continuous improvement and renewal ensures
that we always remain at the very forefront of contemporary international
education. Over 1,600 students, drawn from 40 different nationalities, benefit
from the support and guidance of exceptional teachers and top class facilities,
and are provided with outstanding opportunities to develop their interests
both inside and out of the classroom. Throughout their time at Shrewsbury,
students follow the National Curriculum for England. They develop a passion
for learning and graduate with internationally recognised IGCSE and A-level
qualifications that provide the gateway to the world’s leading universities
and colleges, including the elite Ivy League and Oxbridge universities. Every
year, Shrewsbury delivers class-leading examination results and 2016 was
no exception. 35% of A-level exams taken by Shrewsbury Students in 2016

Setting a new record for the school, 73% of IGCSE exams scored A or A*
